During the Bull Shoals City Council’s Nov. 30 discussion on the proposed 2018 budget, council member Tuesday Rhodes leveled several accusations at Kim Williams, the city’s former recorder/treasurer
Those allegations are incorrect, said Williams, who resigned from office on July 5.
“You can compare it at any job. The last person to leave, it’s all that person’s fault,” Williams said. “Everything that happened.” Williams failed to pay the required amount into a state-run police and firefighter retirement fund, forcing the city to pay $75,000 to remain current, Rhodes said.
Williams said the city did owe the fund $58,000, but that amount was for shortcomings dating all the way back to 1983 for the police department and 1990 for the police department.
